Which? response to today’s Government announcement on energy bills

Richard Lloyd, Which? executive director said:

“It is possible to be both leaner and greener, with our analysis showing that the Government could save hard pressed consumers as much as £68 off their annual energy bills, while helping the same number of people insulate their homes this year and keeping to our green commitments.

“Successive Governments have failed with their energy efficiency policies, which we estimate will cost consumers £8.4bn by 2015.  A radical overhaul is long overdue so we look forward to seeing the full details from the Chancellor in his Autumn Statement this week.”

Notes to Editor

1. Last week Which? released a report that revealed successive government policies have failed to improve the energy efficiency of the majority of Britain’s homes and will have cost consumers an estimated £8.4bn by 2015.
